1 Samuel 29:1-11
1. The Philistines gathered all their hosts together unto Aphec: And Israel pitched by a fountain in Jezrahel.
2. And the lords of the Philistines went forth by hundreds and by thousands. But David and his men came behind with Achis.
3. Then said the lords of the Philistines: what are yonder Hebrews? And Achis said unto the lords of the Philistines: Is not this David the servant of Saul the king of Israel, which hath been with me days or years, and I have found no fault in him since he fled unto me unto this day.
4. Nevertheless the lords of the Philistines were wroth with him and said unto him: Make this fellow return, and let him go again to his place which thou hast appointed him. For he shall not go with us to to battle, lest he be an adversary to us in the battle. For wherewith could he better obtain the favour of his master, than upon the heads of our men.
5. Is not this David to whom they sang in dances: Saul slew his thousand, but David his ten thousand?
6. Then Achis called David and said unto him: As sure as the LORD liveth thou art honest, and it pleaseth me well that thou shouldest accompany me in the host, for I have found none evil with thee since thou camest to me unto this day: Nevertheless the lords of the Philistines favour thee not:
7. wherefore return and go in peace, that thou displease not the lords of the Philistines.
8. And David said again to Achis: Why what have I done? and what hast thou found in thy servant as long as I have been with thee unto this day? that I may not go fight against the enemies of my lord the king?
9. Achis answered and said to David: I wot well thou pleasest me, as it were an Angel of God. Notwithstanding the lords of the Philistines have said, that thou shalt not go with them to battle.
10. Wherefore rise up early in the morning with thy master's servants that are come with thee. And when ye be up early as soon as ye have light, depart.
11. And so David and his men rose early to depart in the morning, and to return into the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezrahel.

1 Samuel 30:1-31
1. But yer David and his men were come to Zikeleg the third day, the Amalekites had run in a running upon the south and upon Zikeleg, and had smitten Zikeleg and burnt it with fire,
2. and had taken the women that were therein prisoners, both small and great: but slew not a man, save carried them with them and went their ways.
3. When David and his men came to the city: behold, it was burnt with fire, and their wives, their sons and their daughters were taken prisoners.
4. Then David and the people that was with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they could weep no more.
5. And David's two wives were taken prisoners also: Ahinoam the Jezrahelite and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite.
6. And David was in a shrewd strait: for the people intended to stone him because the hearts of the people were vexed for their sons and their daughters.
7. But David took a good courage to him in the LORD his God and said to Abiathar the priest Ahimelech's son: bring me the Ephod. And Abiathar brought the Ephod to David.
8. And David asked the LORD saying: shall I follow after this company? and shall I overtake them? And he said to him: follow, for thou shalt overtake them and recover the prey.
9. And he went and the six hundredth men that were with him, and they came to the river Besor, where a part of them abode.
10. But David and four hundredth men followed: But two hundredth abode behind being too weary to go over the river Besor.
11. Then they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to David and gave him bread to eat and water to drink,
12. and gave him a few figs and two clusters of raisins. And when he had eaten his spirits came again to him: for he had eaten no bread nor drunk no water in three days and three nights.
13. Then David said unto him: to whom belongest thou and whence art thou? and the lad answered: I am an Egyptian and servant to an Amalekite: and my master left me behind, because it is three days a gone that I fell sick:
14. We came a roving upon the south of Cerethis, and upon them of Juda and on the south of Caleb. And we burnt Zikeleg with fire.
15. And David said to him: canst thou bring me to this company? And he said: swear unto me by God, that thou wilt neither kill me nor deliver me into the hands of my master, and I will bring thee unto them.
16. And when he had brought him: see, they lay scattered abroad upon the earth, eating and drinking and triumphing over all the great prey that they had carried away out of the land of the Philistines, and out of the land of Juda.
17. And David laid upon them from the twilight until the evening on the morrow: so that there escaped not a man, save four hundredth young men which rode away upon camels and fled.
18. And David recovered all the Amalekites had carried away, and his two wives:
19. so that there was no person lacking small or great, son or daughter, or of the spoil of all that they had taken away, David brought all again.
20. And David took all the sheep, and the oxen. And they drave the cattle before, and said: this is David's prey.
21. And then David came to the two hundredth men that were too weary for to follow David which they made to abide at the river Besor. And they came to meet David and the people that were with him. And when David came to the people, he saluted them.
22. Then answered all the wicked and the unthrifts of the men that went with David, and said: because they went not with us, therefore shall none of the prey that we have recovered, be given unto them, save to every man his wife and his children: which let them carry away and be walking.
23. Then said David: ye shall not do so (my brethren) with that the LORD hath given us, and hath preserved us, and delivered the company that came against us, into our hands.
24. For who should hearken unto you in this matter? But as his part is that goeth and fighteth, so good shall his part be, that tarrieth by the stuff, they shall part it alike.
25. And so from that day forward was that made a law and a custom in Israel, and dureth to this day.
26. When David came to Zikeleg, he sent of his prey unto the elders of Juda and to his friends saying: see there a blessing for you, of the spoil of the enemies of the LORD.
27. He sent to them of Bethel: to them of south Ramath: to them of Gether:
28. to them of Aroer: to them of Sephamoth: to them of Esthamo:
29. to them of Rachal: to them of the cities of the Jerhameelites: to them of the cities of the Kenites:
30. to them of Haramah: to them of Borasan: to them of Athach:
31. to them of Hebron, and to all places where David and his men were wont to haunt.

1 Samuel 31:1-13
1. And as the Philistines fought against Israel, the men of Israel fled away from the Philistines, and fell down dead in mount Gelboe.
2. And the Philistines followed after Saul and his sons, and slew Jonathas, Abinadab and Melchisua Saul's sons.
3. And the battle went sore against Saul, in so much that shooters with bows had found him, and he was sore wounded of the shooters.
4. Then said Saul unto his harness bearer: draw out thy sword and thrust me thorow therewith lest these uncircumcised come thrust me thorow and make a mocking stock of me. But his harness bearer would not, for he was sore afraid. Wherefore Saul took a sword and fell upon it.
5. And when his harness bearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise upon his sword and died with him.
6. And so Saul died and his three sons and his harness bearer, and thereto all his men, that same day together.
7. When the men of Israel that were of the other side of the valley, and they of the other side Jordan, heard that the men of Israel were put to flight, and that Saul and his sons were dead, they left the cities, and ran away, and the Philistines came and dwelt in them.
8. On the morrow when the Philistines were come to strip them that were slain, they found Saul and his sons lying in mount Gelboe.
9. And they cut off his head and stripped him out of his harness, and sent unto the land of the Philistines everywhere, to publish in the houses of their Gods(Idols) and to the people.
10. And they hanged up his harness in the house of Astharoth, but they hanged up his carcase on the walls of Bethsan.
11. When the inhabiters of Jabes in Gilead heard thereof what the Philistines had done to Saul,
12. they arose as many as were men of war and went all night and took the carcase of Saul and the carcases of his sons from the walls of Bethsan and brought them to Jabes and burnt them there
13. and took their bones and buried them under a Tree at Jabes, and fasted seven days. [The end of the first book of Samuell, which they commenly call the first of the Kings.]

Psalms 61:5-8
5. For thou, O Lord,(God) hast heard my desires, thou hast given an heritage unto those that fear thy name.
6. Thou shalt grant the king a long life, that his years may endure thorowout all generations.
7. That he may dwell before God for ever: Oh let thy loving mercy and faithfulness preserve him.
8. So will I allway sing praises unto thy name, that I may daily perform my vows.

Proverbs 16:7-9
7. When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh his very enemies to be his friends.
8. Better is it to have a little thing with righteousness, than great rents wrongously gotten.
9. A man deviseth a way in his heart, but it is the LORD that ordereth his goings.

John 3:19-36
19. And this is the condemnation: (that) Light is come into the world, and the men have loved darkness more than light, because their deeds were evil.
20. For every man that evil doeth, hateth the light: neither cometh to light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21. But he that doth truth, cometh to the light, that his deeds might be known, how that they are wrought(done) in God.
22. After that(these things) came Jesus and his disciples into the jews' land, and there abode(he haunted) with them and baptised,
23. and John also baptised in Enon besides Salim, because there was much water there, and they came, and were baptised.
24. For John was not yet cast into prison.
25. (And) There arose a question between John's disciples and the jews about purifying.
26. And they came unto John, and said unto him: Master,(Rabbi) behold he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness,(belhold the same) baptiseth, and all men come to him.
27. John answered, and said: A man can receive nothing at all except it be given him from heaven.
28. Ye yourselves are witnesses, how that I said: I am not Christ: but am sent before him.
29. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: But the friend of the bridegroom which standeth by and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this my joy is fulfilled.
30. He must increase: and I must decrease.
31. He that cometh from on high is above all: he that is of the earth is of(off) the earth,(earthly) and speaketh of the earth. He that cometh from heaven, is above all:
32. And testifieth that he hath seen, and heard: and his testimony no man receiveth.(and what he hath seen and heard: that he testifieth: but no man receiveth his testimony.)
33. Whosoever receiveth his witness, the same hath sealed that God is true.(How be it, he that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.)
34. For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the words of God. For God giveth not the spirit by measure.
35. The father loveth the son, and hath given all things into his hand.
36. He that believeth on the son, hath everlasting life. And he that beloveth(believeth) not the son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
